Build a Bouquet Bokeh

Build a Bouquet 02

 

Happy Valentines Day!  I’ve had this idea in my head for a while but wasn’t even sure it could be done – Bokeh on both sides of one piece of watercolor paper.  The answer – yes it can!  Because the paper gets pretty wet doing this technique, I thought it would create quite a mess on the other side.  But it’s fine!  Just make sure you start with a large enough piece of watercolor paper so the sides can be cut down.  I used Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi for this card.  After applying the White Craft circles, I sprayed the entire piece with Shimmer Spray!  In real life this is a very sparkly card 🙂   After the paper was ready – and dry – I used Karen Burniston’s Tag Pivot die to create the card.  The sentiment is from Build a Bouquet – it’s one of my favorite sentiments – and is over stamped with Gorgeous Grunge in Pink Pirouette.

The hearts on the front are a retired Stampin Up punch and the inside heart is from Karen Burniston’s Heart Pivot card die.  I added some washi tape, sequins, and a little sliver of gold foil paper – but there is a lot going on in just the paper so I tried to just step away from the embellishments!  Wishing you lots of love today – Hugs, Fran
